To get the average velocity

  1. Feb 25, 2008 #1
    Instead of finding the average velocity http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/physics/onedim/node3.html [Broken], could you also find the instantaneous velocity of two points of a function and divide by 2 (or something similar, it may not be instantaneous).

    If you know the initial and final velocity then yes the average is the sum of the two velocities divided by two.
